About Jonas Kroon
Jonas Kroon is a Norwegian composer creating cinematic music with a blend of world, electronic and orchestral elements.
Thinking of composition as way of opening windows into other worlds, Jonas makes music that spurs the imagination, sometimes in a way similar to artists like Deep Forest, Enigma and Vangelis.
Influenced by film composers like Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman and Howard Shore, Jonas is not afraid of going epic. Still, in-between passages of orchestral power there are small moments. No grand and brave without the intimate and fragile.
Inspiration: World cultures, travel, science, spirituality, ancient history.
Musical influences: Deep Forest, Enigma, Vangelis, Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, Howard Shore, Antonio Vivaldi, Sigur Ros, Jean-Michel Jarre, Yann Tiersen.
